History

While the Binghamton Whalers were generally a successful team, their final season was the worst in the entire history of the AHL, after which they folded. Ironically, the Hartford Whalers moved its affiliation to Springfield the next season, where the seven remaining players from the disastrous 1990 Binghamton season helped the Indians to their seventh and final Calder Cup championship.

The market was previously served by:

Broome Dusters of the NAHL (1973–1977)

The market was subsequently home to:

Binghamton Rangers of the AHL (1990-1997)
B.C. Icemen of the UHL (1997–2002)
Binghamton Senators of the AHL (2002-present)
